Subject: Don't Waste Your Time
I don't normally do this, but after 30 minutes, I was bored to death, and shut it off. Up to that point, Mary Beth Hughes, supposedly one of the picture's stars, had approximately 2 minutes of screen time. And what's with the kid who sneaks out of the house in the middle of the night to greet the trains arriving at the station? WHAT IS HIS PROBLEM? And why does he wear a beanie with a propeller? What is he, five years old?
Lee Patrick, who was in "The Maltese Falcon," is totally wasted as the boy's mother. The only good thing for her was that the director of this mess, Lew Landers, went on to direct the "Topper" TV show and gave Patrick the part of Mrs. Topper.

Subject: MARY BETH, AS IN "HUGHES"...
Of course it's low-budget, of course the plot is sometimes confusing, of course the kid sees stuff he shouldn't oughtta...but who cares ? When Mary Beth Hughes is on-screen bitching, doing dishes, falling for the wrong guy (again), and looking as hot-as-ever, the film picks up steam and eventually closes out...just as the "Inner Sanctum" Radio Shows did: leaving you wondering if it WAS "real", or, all just a bad dream.
And, let's you realize (again) that Mary Beth Hughes should have gotten some solid "A-List" roles...because she really was a very good Actress.

One by one, the suspicions mount among the locals. What will happen?

And where did he get that snazzy beanie with the propellers? I really wanted one of those when i was a kid, but they were kind of out of style by then..
He probably wore it hoping he could just fly away from such a worry wart of a mom. My mom was the type who would have paid us kids to go get lost in the woods, but there was nobody out there to hurt us except other mean kids in the neighborhood.
Good movie and yes..it WAS a film noir movie. Just because there were no detectives doesn't disqualify it.

I highly recommend this picture, even if you don't delve into this type of film.
